Performance: ScrapCycle Opening, May 7, 2010

We’ll be performing with Ranjit Bhatnagar on his handmade instruments along with other instruments (mostly made in factories in China or Japan) at the opening of the ScrapCycle show at Devotion Gallery In Williamsburg.

This performance will be more open-ended and expansive than our March performance which was dedicated to demonstrating some of these instruments.

Bora Yoon and Tom Vanderwall will also be performing.

The opening opens at 7:00 p.m. on May 7th at Devotion Gallery, located at 54 Maujer Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11206. The price of admission is a used water bottle, which they may be using for some project or perhaps to serve you the complementary refreshments.

ScrapCycle places an exchange-value on upcycled and reused materials, in order to probe the environmental effects of economic perspective. By presenting concrete implementations of reuse and recombination, ScrapCycle(reUSE/reCOMBINE) serves to liken the small pervasive effects of social sculpture, environmental activism, and economic perspective to a fine-tuning of interdependent parameters with global results. ScrapCycle(reUSE/reCOMBINE) references complexity science as it relates to political economy, ecology, and methods of reuse and recombination (i.e., small-world networks, social systems theory, ecological systems theory, evolutionary computation, genetic algorithms, neural networking).
